Alien Chicks where set to play their first gig after their single release “cowboy”. The venue of choice for their endeavour was there Windmill Brixton, and what a place to do it!

I haven’t ventured to the Windmill for a fair few months and to be honest with you, I didn’t realise how much I missed the place. As the anticipation built, we walked up Blenheim Gardens and the topic of conversation was full of bands I’ve seen here in their early days; Goat Girl, Lynks, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Squid and Deadletter just to name a few and how I had the same feeling walking up this street as I do now for Alien Chicks. 

We bust through the door and where met by the smell of old dry vomit and the sound of thumping punky bass, and I knew I was home…
I first met Alien Chicks a few months ago and was blown away with their performance. After interviewing them I was very exited to see where they would end up next, and here I am at their sold out, headline gig at the windmill awaiting the release of 4th Single and my god they did not disappoint. The three of them on stage set the tone of the energy from the get go, it was intense! Stomper after stomper a real thought-out and practiced set with the exiting spiracle of mayhem. Alien Chicks have perfected their sound and have built a decent following for their gigs, with swarms of fans singing along to every word. Just as you thought they where going to give themselves a break from the high intenseness of the performance they began to do an eerie rendition of “Teddybears Picnic” and BAM! They took it up a notch in true Windmill style the whole crowd was bouncing. We where then met by the awaited first performance of “Cowboy” after the release which was all as fierce as the rest of the gig. The new single “Cowboy” explores themes of regret, confusion and self blame and as Alien Chicks spat out the lyrics you could tell every word was more meaningful than the last, I’m really exited about this band and “cowboy” is one of the many many reasons why! Please click the link below and let their yammer breach your ears. Alien chicks are currently on a UK tour do not miss them, you’ll regret it!

In the age of Trump, Covid and Brexit it’s hard to escape the feeling that we’re inching ever closer to some sort of chaotic crescendo. It’s an exhausting time for a lot of people, and alt-punk trio Monakis are none too happy about this mess. Their new track ‘ Fake News ’ is the Brighton band’s second single. Monakis are not keen to shy away from their outrage as the track erupts instantly at breakneck speed. Most recent bands commonly see fights break out at the gigs, but Monakis sound like a gig broke out at a fight. “Respect yourself,” frontman James Porter repeats throughout the track. It’s an unhinged mantra, one delivered with a charismatic snarl.  The sound production on this track is something that I noted right away. It does everything that it needs to do. Modern punk wannabes have a tendency to apply a sort of glimmer and shine to their sound, something which more often than not works to round off the jagged edges that the band have spent so long sharpening. This is not the

Why You Should Buy Monday Tickets To All Points East

Goat Girl  As the anticipation builds for Goat Girl’s new album tour, the south London bred quartet play at All Points East, and what a place to get started! The new album “ On All Fours ”, produced by Dan Carey (Fontaines D.C. Squid, Black Midi) came out January of this year and they will be showcasing it on the North Arena at 4pm just after Working Mens Club.  Bombay Bicycle Club Bombay Bicycle Club is set to play All Points East on Monday at 7.25pm on the West Stage. Their most recent album “ Everything Else Has Gone Wrong ” peaked at no.4 in the uk charts in 2020 and boy are we excited to finally hear it live! We have not heard much in the way of new music from these guys other than their latest single release “ Terrapin Station (ft. Flyte) ” which was out May of this year. So we are hopefully anticipating some new tracks they’ve been rumoured to be working on. Only time will tell, we’ll have to see on Monday!

  Off the back of their newest single Woodlouse, we caught up with Alien Chicks for a quick interview after their show at The George tavern in Whitechapel. But first a little bit about their support band… It was a nippy east London evening and as the the sound checks started there were murmurs of the headline act Pigeonhole cancelling last minute. So we were met by a band that stepped in I had not yet heard of, a side project of Alien chicks’ called Robert; they proceeded to carry out an energetic jam session. The electric energy was lead by the flank by their erratic Sax player Jasper, who seriously brought the vibe. As it was an unplanned jam session the frontman Max at one point confessed he’d run out of things to say so he pronounced to the crowd that he would read out the entirety of The Secretary of State scumbag, Jacob Rees Mogg’s Wiki page, and somehow he made it sound poetic. What a start to the evening, it was then we knew that we where in for a treat. Alien Chicks plugg
